Doors Open Ontario events continuing into fall

More than half of this year’s Doors Open Ontario events are taking place this fall – many commemorating the theme of this year’s program, “Defending a nation”.

Ontario’s architectural showpieces, community landmarks and natural wonders are waiting to be explored – all free of charge.

Four of this year’s five new events are scheduled for September: Quinte West, Algonquin Highlands, Halton Hills and Lambton County.

The Doors Open Ontario 2012 program represents hundreds of communities and thousands of individual heritage sites. When events conclude in October, the program will have generated more than 4.5 million visits to 5,000 sites across the province since it began in 2002. Out-of-town visitors will have spent an estimated $23 million in Ontario’s communities.

 Upcoming Doors Open Ontario events ...
Doors Open Ontario 2012 sponsors include: The Globe and Mail, the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, the Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation, the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund and the participating communities.

Doors Open Ontario is a program of the Ontario Heritage Trust – an agency of the Government of Ontario dedicated to identifying, preserving, protecting and promoting Ontario’s heritage for present and future generations.
